Mystical Golf - Myrtle Beach South Carolina
published by eSouthernGOLF Magazine Nov. 06, 2013
Myrtle Beach prides itself as the ‘Golf Capital of the World’ with over 100 golf courses located within a 60 mile stretch of Atlantic coastline known as the Grand Strand. Another reason for that label is that you can find some of the highest quality layouts in the country here. If you are looking for an outstanding and memorable golf experience in Myrtle Beach, you need not look any further than the trio of Dan Maples’ unique designs known as Mystical Golf. The first awesome layout of this triumvirate is the Witch, which opened in 1989, and was awarded 4+1/2 stars from Golf Digest. The par 71 challenging course sits on 500 acres of pristine wetlands teeming with tranquil cypress groves, an abundance of wildlife, and almost a mile of bridges snaking through scenic natural beauty to transport you from one remarkable golf hole to another. Just a few miles north of the Witch, off of Highway 501, you will find the dynamic duo of the Wizard and Man O’War, Golf Digest rated 4 star courses, that opened in 1996. The two totally different layouts were carved out of a pine forest and a 107 acre man made lake which allowed Maples and the owner, Claude Purdue, to mound the Wizard around its 6700+ yards with over a million yards of dirt into a design reminiscent of the Scottish Highlands.
Myrtle Beach's Mystical Golf: Witch is better for you, or is it Wizard or Man O' War?
published by GolfCarolina.com Oct. 30, 2013
Mystical Golf in Myrtle Beach has three courses that rarely disappoint. But if you had to pick only one, which one would it be? If you have time, my recommendation is to play all three courses. That holds especially true for visitors who will spend several days in Myrtle Beach. There are plenty of other terrific courses on the Grand Strand, but if you can find time to play The Witch, The Wizard and Man O' War, you won't regret it.
Best of Myrtle Beach for a Fall or Winter Golf Getaway
published by Luxury Travel Magazine (online) Oct. 27, 2013
From New York to Washington State (not to mention across all of Canada), phone lines are buzzing and keyboards burning as snow-challenged golfers research, plan and orchestrate getaways to sunny destinations. The veritable "Golf Capital of the World" – Myrtle Beach, S.C. – should be on the short list of every have-clubs-will-travel type this season. The golf is affordable, the hospitality unrivaled, and the seafood so fresh you can hear the Atlantic Ocean if you put your ear to it. Born into a family with roots in golf course construction dating back to the 19th century, Dan Maples is an architect whose name carries great weight in the Carolinas. A trio of his "can't-miss" courses is located on Myrtle Beach: Mystical Golf's The Witch, Man-O-War and The Wizard.
Myrtle business model: Mystical Golf’s Pardue stresses value for the price

One sentence from Claude Pardue tells you – in a way – what his priorities are in the competitive world of Myrtle Beach golf.
"If I could build awful golf courses and make money doing it, I would," says the owner of Mystical Golf, a three-course package (The Witch, The Wizard, Man O' War) that over the past 25 years has carved out its Grand Strand niche. "I love business; golf, I’m kind of so-so (about)"
Pardue's statement is about philosophy, not preference. No owners actually think bad golf can be a money-maker (though there are enough mediocre courses around that you might wonder), but the Burlington, N.C., native says it takes more than good courses to draw players to America’s golf Mecca

It may be just a short drive from the
beach, but with its moss-covered trees,
wetlands, marshes and constant buzz of hissing insects, The Witch looks like it has
been dropped in the middle of a Louisiana
bayou. With two contrasting nines – low
and wet, and then woods and mostly dry
– it’s a magical and at times almost
